hello all,

i have a question: would my current power supply be sufficient for my new pc build.

the components i will be installing are as follows:

MB: ASUS crosshair v formula-z
Memory: corsair vengeance 8GBx2 1600MHZ DDR3
Graphics card: ASUS GTX 770-DC02OC-2GD5
Cooling System: corsair hydro series h80i liquid cooler
CPU: AMD FX8350 processor
Optical: ASUS 12x bd-rom
Secondary storage: Seagate barracuda 2TB HDD
Primary storage: Kingston hyperX 120 GB SSD
Tertiary Storage: Seagate barracuda 500GB HDD
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

the power supply i currently have is a silverstone 600W.

Would this power supply be capable or should i go with something larger?

all to be installed in a Thermaltake Armor series VA8003BWS case.

The silverstone 600 watt should be enough to power everything.

Your estimated wattage is 503W via
You should be fine if you keep everything at stock settings because you'd want at least 100w of head room.

What model on the Silverstone?

It's an older modular ps. About seven years old, with minimal use... I'll get the model number off of it later for you.

If it's that old I would upgrade to something newer.

The model number on the Silverstone is as follows: AD1212HS-A71GL

If that's out of date, what power supply would you recommend that could compliment a second gtx770 at a later date?

Make sure it's not one of the lots of RM750 AND RM850's that have thermal issues.

That RM lineup is not that great.

AX was a wise choice.

How much would it cost by the way?

the build or the power supply?

power supply is $210 on amazon and the build itself runs about $2k.
